In Genesis I, God seemed more distant from humankind, and man and woman are considered equal. In Genesis II, God seems to be more of a father figure, and man seems to be more superior than woman. Both versions were the same in the way...

    Walt Whitman: Transcendentalism By the late 19 th century, Walt Whitman had become positioned at the forefront of the American cultural lexicon.

Whitman's greatest literary accomplishment, Leaves of Grass, had set the ideas of divinity, the hierarchy of the holy trinity, and the ethereal perfection afforded these things into turmoil. What he did was ta...

That the story is concerned somehow with religion is obvious, but the particulars are vague, and its message becomes all the more interesting when Joyce begins to mingle romantic attraction with divine love. "Araby' is a story about both wordly love and religious devotion, and its weird mix of symbols and images details the relationship– sometimes peaceful, sometimes tumultuous– between the two. In...

An anthem to the ego is blasphemy to the pious, because it implies that reverence pertains not to God, but to man, and above all, to that fundamental and inherently selfish thing within him that enables him to deal with reality and survive.' This passage means that Anthem's use of biblical symbolism really intends to mock religi...
